I had a bit of a revelation as to why i defer back to fanart quite a lot ... more than i want to. Tis cos I just like getting on with the drawing and composition - rather than having to think up of a character design/story at the same time!

For me, the process feels no different to fanart ... just taking a character thats already been designed and then just messing with it on a canvas.

This reminds me of a mix of a Homestuck troll [look up 'Homestuck Vriska' if you don't know what I mean'] and Chell from Portal. :D
